The pains of riding (and learning) the CARTA bus system

Jessie and Beau (no last names to be found) recently went on a "CARTA Adventure" to see just how efficient and pleasant it can be to take the bus from the Citadel Mall in West Ashley to downtown Charleston.

Doing the trip for the Coastal Conservation League the pair wanted to see just how practical a trip done by car in 15 minutes can be done on the bus.

The short answer? It's not very quick or very pleasant.

Oh, and you'll recall that due to budget cuts CARTA is planning to increase their ticket prices and trim some routes. You can give the agency feedback about that over here. And you can e-mail miscellaneous comments to
